@Meandhim @perianjay I'm thinking of getting a base coat too before I leave...mainly because I still have tan lines from 2 years ago (i'm not even kidding). I think I mentioned my 'headlights'(as Sean likes to call them) at our last GTA meet up. They just never see the light of day and the tan lines will show with my dress.

 

I also have this really great sunscreen it's only SPF 30 but I tested it out in Sept when I was there and I didn't burn at all and I usually burn pretty easily. I was a lobster at my cousin's DW. The ingredients are also really safe to use (one of the few that they let into ecological parks like Xcaret). It's a little pricier but I think it's worth it not to get a burn. Let me know if you want more info and I can PM you the details! :)

@Meandhim I bought mine through bestbuy at a store, but I made sure to have them price match it with amazon.ca (at the time amazon was cheaper) I'm not sure if that's still the case. We have the newest one and we got the black edition because it has the best picture quality. Just make sure if you buy one you also use a memory card that is class 10.

@snswedding2016

Me too!! I burned my first trip to Mexico pretty bad and I can still see the lines from 3 years ago!

I started fake tanning but ran out of time. You need a month or more to really get a tan so get on it ladies. I went for three weeks and you could barely tell lol

I am fair skinned so I didn't go for long periods. Maybe 7 mins then worked up. That said I used SPF 60 every hour and did well. You just have to apply apply apply. After my first oops I learned my lesson. I personally also feel the spray sunscreen works better.

You could also buy 110. It's harder to find but it's out there.

Go pros rawk. We don't have one but do have a waterproof Olympus and best money we spent :)

My photographer keeps telling me he can work magic but can't photoshop sunburns! So I'm going to be very careful in Jan!


@Meandhim sorry to post a photo on your thread, that was silly - I got caught up in sunburn talk...you can totally delete this!!

I keep thinking about you periodically because I remember your wedding is a few weeks before mine. What day do you leave for Punta Cana?! How are things going now that you're in the final weeks?
